Joash Quotes

As Joash continues to talk more and more clearly, some of the things he says are really funny. Here are a few of our recent favorite quotes.

The other day, Joash had a new treat at snack time, marshmallows.
When Wilbert asked what he had for a snack after nap time, Joash said, "Mushrooms."

We took Joash swimming yesterday. The pool has a few different toys and things for kids to play with while swimming. One item is a whale that flat and sinks to the bottom of the pool. We showed it to Joash, who said it was a dolphin. Then while inspecting it, he flipped it over the back side, which is a black speckly pattern and declared, "Dirty dolphin." We then asked him what colour the other side was. Joash looked at it, saying, "hmm.." Then he touched it with his hand, closed his eyes and said, "red" with a confident nod of his head. It was red and we both thought his process was a bit funny.

After swimming, Wilbert was drying Joash off, and Joash kept saying, "yogurt on finger. Right here. Yogurt." Wilbert thought it was just a piece of lint from the towel or something. When Joash showed me, I saw that his finger tips had become all wrinkly and pruney, so I think he really did think he had yogurt on his finger.

And finally this morning Joash told me he was, "going to drive big tractor with farmer to Michigan." I said, "Okay," and then Joash stopped pushing his tractor and came to by me and said, "Need jacket on." I am glad he remembered he need to put on his jacket before he goes outside. But, since it was raining, I didn't let him start the drive to Michigan today.

He's Rolling!

Gideon has master rolling this week and sometimes, he is not too happy about it... He can go from his back to his belly all on his own. And if you lay him on his belly propped up on his elbows, he will roll over to his back.
He started rolling in his crib at nap time, so that means no more swaddling. Which also means we have to relearn sleeping through the night. He has done two nights swaddle free, which have gone okay. He stirs a few more times during the night, but I only got up once to actually feed him so he will settle back to sleep. So, not too bad and hopefully we get back on track quickly.

A Farm Boy Already

I don't fully understand how this happens, but Gideon already loves the tractor. If he is in the kitchen or the living room and he hears the sound of the tractor, he crawls to the closest window and has a look outside. When he sees it, he often starts drumming on the window sill, so excited. He repeats a little "T" sound, like he is trying to say tractor. He hasn't actually gone for a ride in the tractor, yet. But I think he will be pretty excited to that some day soon.

Storybook Character Day 2016

Today was Storybook Character Day at Joash's school. I tried to make it easy on myself and encouraged Joash to use one of the costumes we have on hand. So, he picked the chef costume and took the book Sam the Chef.  Notice anything about his face? I didn't have time to take a picture before school and we got a call right around lunch time that Joash had a pretty bad fall on the asphalt at school during recess. He was pretty shook up about, so I went to pick him up early today. He seems pretty much his normal self now, so we are not too worried. And of course, school pictures are on the 31st, so we will have to see how well he has healed by then.
